Soccer – Wenger confirms Ramsey’s absence

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that a calf injury will sideline Aaron Ramsey until the end of February. The 26-year-old Wales international sustained the problem in the first half of the 2-1 home defeat to Watford on Tuesday and will miss Saturday's Premier League clash at Chelsea, as will long-term injury victim Santi Cazorla and the suspended Granit Xhaka. Wenger said: "Overall from the other night we will lose Ramsey. I would say he will be out for 21 days. "We are a bit short in midfield at the moment, but I think we have young players who can do well in there." Arsenal can be backed at 16/5 with bet365 to respond to the shock of losing to Watford by beating Chelsea, while Wenger's team are 14/1 to win the Stamford Bridge clash from behind.
